Heart of Edinburgh!

  • 5 out of 5
Our family of four were comfortable in this lovely flat in Edinburgh. Close to buses, train, and metro as well as the Edinburgh Castle and wonderful places to dine. The kitchen was well stocked, the apartment clean and roomy, we were extremely comfortable and enjoyed relaxing at "home." A Saturday market was across the street with many local treats (to eat and items to take home to the U.S.).
Francois greeted us at the door even though our train had been delayed. He went over the details of our apartment and recommended several wonderful restaurants within walking distance. If we ever return to Edinburgh, we will definitely stay at this location.
Note: Two properties are available; The first floor flat is one flight up the stairs, with the second on the the fourth floor. This was not a problem for our family, but something to keep in mind if there are any issues with stairs or luggage, as there is no elevator available.

Great Location! Great Apartment!

  • 5 out of 5
The location was fantastic, and the apartment was great! We had 6 adults in the apartment and there was plenty of room. The apartment was clean and had everything we needed. We had done some apartment rentals in other places and did not have the greatest luck, but this apartment was well represented in the photos and included all the things we needed. They even had some info on the local area and restaurant / grocery store locations, which was great! Fantastic place and would definitely recommend!!

Ideal location

  • 5 out of 5
We had a lovely time during our stay to celebrate 2 of our groups 30th Birthdays. The property description was very accurate and did not disappoint. The kitchen was very well stocked with cooking equipment, utensils & basic food essentials, and the shower room was of a great standard-very clean. Both bedrooms were good sizes and the living room was perfect for 4 people to relax comfortably. The location is ideal as it's very close to the Castle, but also just 10-15 minute walk to all the best restaurants and shops the City has to offer. We would highly recommend this apartment to young couple as it was perfect for us!

Beautiful flat, great location!

  • 4 out of 5
I stayed here with a colleague to attend an academic conference in Edinburgh, and we were pleasantly surprised by this beautiful apartment in a great part of town, just blocks from the castle and within walking distance of many of Edinburgh's best sights. The owner was cordial and punctual, and the apartment and linens were very clean and obviously well-kept. Also very close to grocery stores and pubs.

My only concern about the apartment was a tall, winding staircase that might be problematic for older people, or for families with very small children; the street could also be loud at times. Otherwise a perfect flat for exploring Edinburgh!

Just Wonderful!

  • 5 out of 5
We had a lovely stress free time here. Owner very easy to contact, super helpful, and apartment clean, very well set up with everything you need. Great location, and lovely to be there on the weekend with the castle street markets just across the road to be able to get some fresh scones and enjoy them back at the apartment with great coffee in the coffee machine - a real perk. 3 couples stayed, and always felt there was ample room for us all to have enough space too. Highly recommend.
